    Dear my friend,

    I am very sad to have a fail on BIOS update. Now, my machine (Satellite A210 MS5) couldn't start. I am trying to reflash it using the Crisis Recovery Disk method. I need the original BIOS Version.: 1.00. Does anybody have this version and send to me? Many thanks! My email is myidavaiable@yahoo.ca

    Do you have some experience on this issue? How can I recover my BIOS?

    Thanks again

    Hi buddy!

    Sorry but I havenít good news for you. On the Toshiba website you can only download the newest BIOS and older BIOS versions are only for authorized service providers available.
    Furthermore a BIOS downgrade can only be done from an ASP.

    So in your case I would go to the nearest ASP that you can find on the Toshiba website and ask for help. The technicians can help you:
    http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com => Support & Downloads => Find an authorized service provider

    Good luck!

    I think you should get an ASP to downgrade the BIOS.

    If you do it yourself using a backup image of a BIOS, the flash may not be successful since a BIOS update requires specific parameters to work properly.

    Thanks Akuma for your advice,

    I want to try it first by myself as my laptop stop starting anyway. If I am lucky, it is great. If not, I will contact a ASP for help. Do you have a BIOS.BAK file with the sample laptop model?

    Many thanks

    I think it depends on the issue and on the single ASP.
    I think you should simply get in contact with the guys and they should provide more details.
